Act Now to Create a Successful Detroit

This op-ed from The Detroit Free Press looks at ambitious goals for the city ten years into the future, and argues that citizens will need to start acting soon to turn those dreams into reality.

A variety of voices within and beyond the city foresee a denser urban core in 2020, buzzing streets, criss-crossing light rail lines and a variety of ambitious futures. The Detroit Free Press says the city needs to get the ball rolling to achieve those goals.

"[T]he time is now. There's a growing consensus among people who want to be part of a real renaissance that if dramatic change doesn't take hold in the next 12 months, the city's decline may become irreversible.

Critical mass ... or critical mess? With the opportunities at hand, the choice is that stark."
